​​My name is Wanda Beaver. My family and I adopted, CWD Apache.  I work as an Educator Coder for GHP.  I am a mother of two.  My husband, Park, is a retired K9 Officer.  We have three fur babies; Apache, Eleanor, and Tig.  Tig is our rescued  kitty.  In 1988, I did my first rescue of a German Shepard named Brusier (Boo).  He suffered from malnutrition and was physically abused.  after about a a year, he not only was protective of, but the most loving and loyal dog that I have ever had.  After personally adopting one of K9 Hero Haven's dogs and seeing all that they do, I knew that I wanted to part of this group.  I work in the kennels, foster, and pretty much what ever is needed.  Seeing these dogs get a loving retirement home is so amazing.

 My name is Jen Bennick. I served 6 years in the Air Force before being honorable medically discharged.  I adopted my dog, Inga, a shepherd/ husky mix, 3 years ago from a shelter when she was 2 yrs old.  As I got to learn Inga's likes & strengths, I wanted to explore dog sledding.  Together the two of us are Road Less Traveled dog sled team & we live for snow!!

The work I do at the kennel not only benefits the dogs, but it is great therapy for me too. I am glad I can contribute to this team.

​Kennel Manager

RaeAnn is a small lady from a small town but she has a huge heart! She has been involved in animal rescue for around 5 years. RaeAnn is a retail manager, small business owner, and tattoo model  with dreams of one day running her own rescue.​​

​I earn a living at a small cannery in Northumberland and live in Sunbury with my bestie, Scoobs. I adopted him about 3 yrs ago from the Danville SPCA. I don’t mind dirt or hard work, I love helping Anne with the dogs at K9 Hero Haven. They are the most wonderful dogs and have done so much for us. It's only right to take care of them in their retirement.

My name is Martina Bennick, I'm currently a graduate student at Bloomsburg University studying Geobiology. I hike a lot, and geology field work is super exciting, so I'm happy to be out doing more stuff that helps animals!

I love being with the dogs and it's so amazing to see all of their different personalities and spirits! This is the best volunteer experience I've ever had.
